How To Make An Upcycled Chalkboard Menu

Don't throw away that old mirror! Instead, add a few coats of chalkboard paint to turn it into a fun, practical kitchen accessory. This simple DIY will help end the debacle of, "Mom, what's for dinner?" and can be used for weekly meal planning. If you've got an unfinished frame, try painting or distressing beforehand, and then using painter's tape to avoid getting black paint on the frame when creating the chalkboard. The sky's the limit when it comes to scale – this DIY can be done on any size of picture frame or mirror. Try using as a larger-scale wedding tool to show guests their seats, or creating table numbers with smaller frames.
